Chiropractic

The chiropractic care that takes place at TCC’s Moody Health Center has a significant impact on the quality of life for the patients it serves. Our chiropractic care takes a holistic approach to health and well-being, including not only the physical but psychological and social aspects of life as well.

Our doctors and student interns focus on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. By restoring normal function to the musculoskeletal system, chiropractic care can play a major role in relieving pain and symptoms associated with:

  • Injuries
  • Accidents
  • Stress
  • Poor posture
  • Lack of exercise
  • Everyday wear and tear

The primary treatment procedure of a Doctor of Chiropractic is the “spinal manipulation” or “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of this treatment is to restore joint motion and mobility by applying a controlled force to restricted joints, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tension.

Family Medicine

At Texas Chiropractic College, we recognize that chiropractic is one form of medical treatment, and that in certain situations it may not be the most appropriate treatment.

At TCC’s Moody Health Center, patients benefit from a “best-of-both-worlds” approach to health care and family medicine. In addition to providing the best possible chiropractic care, MHC also houses a medical doctor to provide care in those situations in which chiropractic care is not the best option for the patient.

Injury Care

Injuries can happen anywhere, at anytime, at any level of seriousness.

At Texas Chiropractic College’s Moody Health Center, we provide services to members of the greater Houston community who need injury care. Our doctors and student interns can provide an evaluation of your injury, determine if it would respond to chiropractic care, and/or refer you to an appropriate health care provider outside of our facility.
